I love it! Its a full colour palette from Ms Prada as well as from Ms Gucci. I am going into Spring now: Australia. Going to fully adopt the bright colours immediately :)
<3 your photos, keep it up. Inspires me.

I LOVE the shoes and the vibrant colours, this collection is very innovative compared to what I've recently seen on the catwalk :)
September 23, 2010 at 7:12 pm
I just adore that banana shirt
September 23, 2010 at 7:14 pm
For me, the dress in picture no.5 is my favourite, but I wasn't quite sure what to make of the shapes and prints on some of the pieces. It will be interesting to see how the collection develops in print campaigns and editorials.

Not good. Really not good.
September 23, 2010 at 7:20 pm
Love this show. Most especially the bright color combos and the lace-up tri-layer platform shoes.Delightful.
these pictures are great but overall Prada has left me feeling disappointed. I dont see anything fresh here and realistically cant see many people wearing this collection. im hoping for better things to come over the next few daysx
I'm blown away by extravagant warm and cool colors!
September 23, 2010 at 7:22 pm
Loving the bright colors!

I am in love with this collection!The colours are sensational..It's so much better comparing last year's collection.Love it!LOx
September 23, 2010 at 7:28 pm
Love the colors and stripes; love the more fitted-cut dresses. Not so keen on the looser-fitting silhouettes. M. Prada is a consummate designer. Love the shoes. I also noticed that Alexander McQueen's influence on the prints, not just for this show, but for other shows during fashion week world-wide is very palpable. Long live McQueen and Prada!
Love the shoes!!
September 23, 2010 at 7:29 pm
the second to last dress, it's adorable!!!
September 23, 2010 at 7:31 pm
Wow. the shoes/colours are amazing!!!
A forest of colour and stripes! love the orange coming through – w
September 23, 2010 at 7:32 pm
beautiful color and patterns!! It's fun to see all the stripes line-up in the last image!
September 23, 2010 at 7:34 pm
love the colors <3
September 23, 2010 at 7:35 pm
Shoes (ignore the 1st photo) and leather work for me. Otherwise, colorful inmates.
September 23, 2010 at 7:39 pm
stunning last photo, collection and color combinations.
I'm digging the colorful stripes. A bold move from the simply black/white, red/white, blue/white.
September 23, 2010 at 7:40 pm
AMO! amo amo amo! uffa … amo!
September 23, 2010 at 7:45 pm
God bless Miuccia and her eye for color and print!
September 23, 2010 at 7:56 pm
I know fashion is all about looking forward, but I much preferred last springs. It simply blew me away. This however isn't as good.
September 23, 2010 at 7:59 pm
Love seeing the final runway – a walking rainbow. But some of those silhouttes are just not flattering. I agree with a post above – how will this collection work in real life? Some pretty dresses and shoes though. That first outfit looked like something from the movie "Brazil!"

the colors make me nostalgic for latin america. the mary janes are so feminine and flirty – a grand departure from the dark and aggressive platform/stilletto

NUTS! Who would really want to wear this? Yikes – horizontal stripes in neons?

Too many stripes.Too many colors.
These prints are really original and inspiring.I just got tickets for an amazing fashion forum in NY on Oct 8th! I thought I should share because I believe it could help people like me trying to meet fashion professionals and learn about the newest trends in our industry! ♥
September 23, 2010 at 8:24 pm
YAY for COLOR!
September 23, 2010 at 8:34 pm
awesome! i love the patterns and the colorful stripes deff futuristic, could possibly be our future fashion ??
September 23, 2010 at 8:35 pm
So much stripes and colors! Great photos!
September 23, 2010 at 8:37 pm
Now that's some color! I love the colorful creepers…never seen any like that before, very cool.
September 23, 2010 at 8:40 pm
Not only is it the shoes, the colors, the prints…it's the mix. It's the lively mix! Go go Miuccia!
Banana shirt :D Immediately remembered banana shoes and a clutch from your recent picture. Nice, makes me smile :) Love the dress from the 2nd photo.

September 23, 2010 at 11:56 pm
the shoes in the first pic are just wierd, i like some of the striped outfits, but the rest of it is a little too strange for me :)
September 24, 2010 at 12:17 am
wow, i can hear the colors speaking to me loud and clear.
September 24, 2010 at 12:23 am
Oy. Not nice.
September 24, 2010 at 12:34 am
wooooow a lot of color! *w*
September 24, 2010 at 12:51 am
hm. fun patterns and, nice, sort of garish use of color, but I see the the shape of the banana shirt enough on older, overweight men who bought them in the 90s at Walmart. Why am I seeing them on Prada models?
Also,I think I have a pair of tri-color platform sneakers that I wore in 1997. I was seven. How bout we leave those shoes wrapped in old posters of the Spice Girls, yeah?
September 24, 2010 at 1:00 am
Prada never ceases to amaze me!
September 24, 2010 at 1:02 am
I love the bright graphic prints! Glad to see they'll be staying current till spring!
September 24, 2010 at 1:05 am
I'm surprised by how much I like the colors; I think it's their high level of saturation & combination with lots of black–whatever it is, they look delicious, not garish. Love the shoes in the first photo, too. But those boxy Hawaiian shirts are a bad, bad idea. I love oversized, but these, like the Saunders shirts, look oddly stiff and awkward. Maybe paired with narrow jeans after a few dozen washes and dryings…
September 24, 2010 at 1:08 am
bounty of colors and stripes, what more do you need…
September 24, 2010 at 1:18 am
What wonderful use of color. Let's hope this one hits the streets. The all back look is due for a breather, I think.
September 24, 2010 at 1:20 am
The first one is gorgeous except the shoes !!
September 24, 2010 at 1:21 am
love the weird platform sneakers.
September 24, 2010 at 1:25 am
Pretty darn awful, except for the second to the last photo (striped slim-fitting spaghetti strap sheath with flounce). It's Too Much. Interesting batch of comments, this time. Most are very pro, or very con.P.S., If you are in Milan, as I imagine you are, then you posted this at 1:30 A.M. local time; mercy me, what dedication!
September 24, 2010 at 1:42 am
Seriously…??? No thank you.

just terrible…what a shame

September 24, 2010 at 3:29 am
It is very Prada..and outrageous!
September 24, 2010 at 3:31 am
Wow, this is the first time I've loved Prada at first sight, it usually takes a little while to grow on me. My friend in Fiji did wonder if Miuccia stole the banana print idea from him, and I have to say I saw similar prints on shirts at a Fijian grocery store just a few hours ago here in Melbourne!!
September 24, 2010 at 3:45 am
Usually I'm not a fan of color, but this was great!
your blog is phenomenal!
September 24, 2010 at 3:56 am
sandwiched platform soles?? barroc monkeys??banana shapeless shirt??I wonder what it would be the editors' reaction if any other less known designar had put the same absurdity on the catwalk.It looks like one of those proyect runaway gone really wrong..

I'm perplexed about this catwalk…
Great colours and patterns. A calypso feel there.
September 24, 2010 at 4:28 am
Love the colour, and the stripe-and-print combinations remind me of Italian street fashion of the 80s – Enrico Coveri, Fiorucci, Byblos. It's wonderful to see colour – summer is coming to the Southern hemisphere and this is inspiring and fresh. BUT, the girls look particularly hideous and theatrical. Yes yes, I know it's a show, but why do they have to look so ugly? Some of them actually look quite sheepish – no doubt because they know how silly they look. Interesting that the fabrics have been printed in such a way that the back side is white – makes me think that they are all quite crisp and heavy. Unusual, in that this is traditionally the cheap and cheerful way of printing fabric, and not sophisticated at all.

How much colour!The gardens of Monet at Giverny this summer.
September 24, 2010 at 5:12 am
I love the colours, like most of the comments above, but I'm really not sure about the boxy shape of the shirts. But perhaps my eye just needs time to adjust–it's funny how some things/clothes/shoes make you go "yuk!" the first time you see them, but twelve months later they're all you want! (Is this the biggest sign of a fashion victim?)
At the moment I love the fitted flouncy dress the most.
September 24, 2010 at 5:38 am
hello 70's vibe, i love you.

September 24, 2010 at 8:22 am
Teh first print is amazing…Prada is unqiue and till Miuccia'll follow her minds the brand will be succesfull!!
September 24, 2010 at 8:27 am
First time I ever post a comment here. First time I really do not know wether or not I like a collection, the idea behind it…some items are very wearable, others maybe just meant to provoke the strong reactions of the comments above
September 24, 2010 at 8:33 am
I am a big fan of stripes, this is interesting
September 24, 2010 at 8:37 am
Reminds me of "Groovy Girls" dollies! Especially the feet!
September 24, 2010 at 8:43 am
Shoes and glasses are interesting! but I don't like this collection…….:(
September 24, 2010 at 8:48 am
i love the perfect amalgamation of feminine and sporty looks one hand and other pop and art nouveau..its extremely beautiful the perfect combination colours print and quirk elements togetherand the styling, hair makeup and the sunnies ….just wow..wow…wow!!!
September 24, 2010 at 9:13 am
The prints are too eye-popping for my liking, but the clothing looks very comfortable.
September 24, 2010 at 9:22 am
I like the glasses and the weird/modern clothes'size.

September 24, 2010 at 9:32 am
These looks feel truly fresh and new. And the sunnies in the first photo are so cool.
September 24, 2010 at 9:33 am
Oh how I love those shoes!!!
September 24, 2010 at 9:46 am
most of people here just "liked" it because is Prada…if was "Mary Nobody" people would laugh..
September 24, 2010 at 10:00 am
This somehow reminds me of Frida Kahlo…..
September 24, 2010 at 10:17 am
I'm laughing – what ill fitting, dowdy lines. And all those colours together- Yuck.
September 24, 2010 at 10:28 am
Ugh, don't like at all. And, I am normally a big Prada fan. This strikes me as way overdone, from the hair and makeup down.
IMO, Saunders did Prada better than Prada did Prada.
September 24, 2010 at 10:37 am
I LOVE the last photo, with the stripes and shoes all heading down teh runway.
September 24, 2010 at 11:14 am
finally, high fashion in wearable lengths/silhouettes!
and the SHOES. yes.
September 24, 2010 at 11:43 am
the colors are amazing!
September 24, 2010 at 11:48 am
I believe Miuccia must have had TOO good of a time at an "Ugliest Hawaiian Shirt" contest in Imperial Beach this summer. (Although there wasn't much summer in IB or elsewhere in SoCal this year). Great color combinations.
September 24, 2010 at 12:13 pm
love love love! I would love to wear every single piece!
September 24, 2010 at 12:45 pm
such a colorful collection
September 24, 2010 at 12:59 pm
Although the combination of colors and design is not to my liking…I love the palette that is presented here. My fave I think is the Orange & Blue combination on Freja Beha in the first photo.
September 24, 2010 at 1:19 pm
Love the colours and the platform shoes!!!
September 24, 2010 at 1:21 pm
colourfull :) Looks stunningBut I hate these platform shoes.The dresses are the best
September 24, 2010 at 1:27 pm
I'm afraid my family would have me committed if I started wearing this style.
September 24, 2010 at 1:44 pm
September 24, 2010 at 2:20 pm
Those tops have the structure of a bowling shirt… many of the silhouettes look fairly androgynous.
September 24, 2010 at 2:23 pm
I just love this collection, the colors, the fit, the Sonia Rykiel air and the shoes. I'm even a fan of the ridiculous striped tails!!!
September 24, 2010 at 2:28 pm
what are you people talking about? i would wear this combination in a heartbeat! especially those incredible patent creeper espadrilles in photo #1. amazing. viva la raver revival!

I don't know. I don't know.
It's the Venice Lido in summer.
Many, many years ago.
September 24, 2010 at 4:48 pm
because if there is ONE ITEM that EVERY WOMAN need in summer then it is a fur stole…
Can't help noticing the bananas in the sixth pic, haha.
That makes the whole thing quite trendy then.
September 24, 2010 at 5:13 pm
Yes, a fur stole makes sense.
If you're going to wear beach wear in the fall.
September 24, 2010 at 6:58 pm
Reminds me of the munchkins in the Land of OZ. I would rather some of the big shirts, mated with something snug to the body. But otherwise, it is marvelous. Especially the sheer fun the designer(s) are having with classic meets cartoon. Bravo!
Can't help but wonder what umbrella they would take to the beach.
September 24, 2010 at 8:19 pm
Is it just me, or do the some of the shoes in this show have a kind of 30s pinup look to them?
September 24, 2010 at 10:06 pm
Wow so colorful and rich in patterns. Not that wearable in real life tho. xxx
September 25, 2010 at 1:43 am
I agree with Barbara about the white underside of the printed fabric,
"Interesting that the fabrics have been printed in such a way that the back side is white – makes me think that they are all quite crisp and heavy. Unusual, in that this is traditionally the cheap and cheerful way of printing fabric, and not sophisticated at all."
I wish the flounces on the bottoms of the skirts were at least lined in black or a contrasting color..they look like cheap computer-printed stiff fabrics. I do like the digital-esque prints, but too bad they look unfinished…

Your photography is stunning as always-the shoes are interesting-but the clothes are trying too hard& have shot past the point of style into parody.
September 25, 2010 at 10:02 am
Thumbs down. Yes, they're visually interesting and eye catching but really, it's hard to imagine toned down versions of these outfits being worn to work or dinner.
September 25, 2010 at 12:38 pm
I really don't get this. For the bulk of the population those horizontal lines across the hips are nothing but trouble!!

I love this collection it is absolutely brilliant. Vibrant colors interspersed with black and white (absolutes on the gray scale with absolute neons=♥)
September 25, 2010 at 8:39 pm
Like some fellow fashion person once said on a style.com-video: "Miuccia has got such a high taste level, she's up there all by herself."
I wouldn't fully agree to that, as there are so many other designers who do great things, but she knows how to impress and set trends every single season – we'll be seeing many of these clothes in editorials over and over and over again – can't wait!

September 26, 2010 at 10:18 am
Best Milan show with Jil Sander !
September 26, 2010 at 1:26 pm
This is what Miuccia does best –design clothes and use fabric that when someone wears it, even from a mile away, you can unmistakably identify that it is, and can only be: PRADA.
I went ape shit on this collection.
September 26, 2010 at 4:32 pm
Teh gorgeus prints are so prada style!!love them!!
September 27, 2010 at 2:27 am
wow the colour is breathtaking! but not overwhelmed :)
September 27, 2010 at 11:42 am
does anyone think that this is a good collection? really….? personally i think Prada has lost his path…it has not an own DNA, is always the new for the sake of new…when you talk about the old Saint Lauren or the first Margiela or now Dries or new designers such as Tisci, Thyeskens or Raf Simons all of them have a personality …Prada is, for me, like a Zara de lux! garments for a season an then trow them away…
September 27, 2010 at 12:30 pm
Very Sonia Rykiel.

Is Prada channeling Carmen Miranda and Daniela Mercury, both from Brazil? Interesting take on this show: http://greengopost.com/prada-evokes-the-tropics-carmen-miranda-daniela-mercury/
November 7, 2010 at 10:47 am
color and stripes and fancy, floral shoes.
October 8, 2011 at 12:30 pm
Is it just me or does Prada’s collection seem to bear some resemblance to Zara’s womens collection right now? Dignified but colourful. Love it. And love the pictures.
November 12, 2011 at 8:39 am
It’s just the worse collection by Prada. I hate the creepers, the sunglasses, dresses cut! OMG very bad, AWEFUL!
